SELF-CLINCHING CABLE STRAPS
Self-clinching cable straps are adjustable, lightweight, flat nylon straps. They have molded ribs or
serrations on the inside surface to grip the wire. They may be used instead of individual cord ties for
securing wire groups or bundles quickly. The straps are of two types: a plain cable strap and one that has
a flat surface for identifying the cables.
Do not use nylon cable straps over wire bundles containing coaxial cable. Do
not use straps in areas where failure of the strap would allow the strap to fall into
Installing self-clinching cable straps is done with a Military Standard hand tool, as shown in figure 2-
50. An illustration of the working parts of the tool is shown in figure 2-51. To use the tool, follow the
